Prince Harry’s explicit “Spare” audio book “Deepfake” is going viral

An edited viral clip that appears to be from the audiobook version of Prince Harry’s hit memoir spare part is being shared widely on social media, with a number of users creating reaction videos and content based on them.

The prince released print and digital versions of his all-encompassing memoir on January 10, including a 15-hour audio book recorded with his own voice.

The first royal literary venture has broken records and become the fastest-selling non-fiction book of all time. He made a series of high profile media appearances to spread the word.

While Harry has garnered plenty of praise for the book from fans and commentators online, he has received just as much backlash, which has caused his popularity in the US and UK to plummet to an all-time low

While some commentators have shared their opinion that the insightful private conversations and gossip behind the prince’s palace walls were distasteful, others have pointed out the humorous aspects of lighter-hearted passages from the book.

In one such passage, the prince describes how he experienced a frozen penis after a hike to the North Pole in 2011. An unedited version of this segment from the audiobook was quickly uploaded by amused fans to the video-sharing app TikTok, where many creators returned viral dances to the clip.

Since the book was published, there have been numerous video trends on social media, with clips, excerpts and reactions being shared. One video that’s garnering particular attention, with nearly a million views, is a “deepfake” audio excerpt that appears to show the prince in graphic and explicit language.

Merriam-Webster defines the word “deepfake” as “an image or recording that has been convincingly altered and manipulated to misrepresent someone as doing or saying something that was not actually done or said”.

The 19-second video was uploaded by TikTok creator Syntheticvoices and has garnered more than 49,000 likes and 1,000 comments.

Listeners to the fake excerpt begin with a flurry of F-words and hear a voice matching Harry’s recitation: “I want you to know that I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals and have been involved in numerous raids on Al was al-Qaeda and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I’m trained in guerrilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces.”

Again, this is not a real excerpt spare part‘s audio book or printed and digital versions. Prince Harry has never served in the US military, nor has he claimed to have taken part in guerrilla warfare or have “300 confirmed kills”.

A number of commentators have praised the clip for its humorous content, but also for the technological advancement it demonstrates.

“This just shows what technology can do but it’s hilarious πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚,” wrote one user.

“Hahaha, that’s brilliant. The AI ​​voice is going to be insanely good,” said another.

So far, the video’s audio has been used in over 450 other TikTok posts, with the creators developing dances, skits and reactions that have been widely shared.

User aymansbooks posted her own humorous reaction video to her 900,000 followers, where it has been viewed over 1.3 million times and received over 200,000 likes.

Musician Taylor Roche also uploaded his personal riff on the viral sound, presenting an expedited dramatic reading of the audio to his 80,000 followers, with the video being viewed by over 230,000 users.

Roche captioned his video: “Prince Harry is a villain” with an additional comment line: “WHO HURT THIS MAN-πŸ’€”
